My birthday face


First of all I must apologise for not doing a Sunday post this week. I fancied having a day off to really enjoy by birthday with my family, I'm sure you all understand.

So for todays post I felt like sharing my make up choices for my big 27. A look that was quick and easy *story of my make up life. It does include a new lipstick which Tony bought me and chose himself. What a keeper. So ... "whats on you face" I hear you cry!

Birthday #FOTD:

Base-
I started by using the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser as I wanted something very natural as I was just staying in at my parents house and didn't need something full coverage. I skipped things like highlighting and contouring and just swept some Mac Peaches over my cheeks for a bit of a fresh faced look.

Brows-
I was feeling ever so lazy this morning and went for the easy option for my brows. Just an angled brush and some Mac Brun shadow and just set it with some Miss Sporty clear mascara. This is my fast option for brows and does end up quite a nice natural look.

Eyes-
Curling my eyelashes is something I could not live without, and for that job the Kevin Aucoin eyelash curlers do the trick perfectly. I know there is so much hype for the Shu Uemura ones however I love the KA ones and feel no need to swap. For shadow base I used the Laura Mercier eyeshadow cream and used Mac Mulch in the crease to add some definition. I have really tried to stick to using the Maybelline falsies mascara and am starting to love it.

Lips-
To my surprise a present from Tony was a lipstick from Nars. This is my second Nars product ever so I was pretty excited when I opened it. The shade is called Grace and it's a pink/red and is just beautiful. Lovely creamy formula that has lasted virtually all day through drinking and eating (lots of it btw). Expect a write up soon. I'm totally obsessed with this lipstick already and would love some more suggestions if any of you have any.

All in all an effortless, fresh, quick, pretty make up look that is easy to re-create. Hope you all have a lovely day, see you Wednesday.

Happy Monday
xoxo

  3. I love how perfect and yet completely natural your brows look! Good for you that you don't even have to spend much time on them to make them look like this ^.^

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
